Alan Bennett’s sharp and witty new play is ‘just what the doctor ordered’ (Daily Telegraph).  Set in a local hospital facing closure as part of an efficiency drive, this state-of-the-nation piece is a ‘rousing chorus line for the NHS’ (Observer).  It will be an Alan Bennett double bill for NT Live in November, with the broadcast of his famous The Madness of George III following shortly after.
